Hello fellow VR explorers
I have a question - one that has been asked (kind of), but rarely at that.
What happens to me, is that after I plug the phone in, OCCASIONALLY the Oculus connection sound will be heard.
Whether it does or doesn't, doesn't matter. It still only shows a black screen and a small white "x" in the left hand bottom corner.
When disconnecting the phone from the Gear VR, I get a brief "Calibrating Gear VR" message, and then the display returns to the home screen.
My Gear VR does not work on my phone (which is a Galaxy S6
), but it seems to working flawlessly with a friends Galaxy Note.
So I can at least establish that the problem is within the phone.
Solutions I've tried so far:
Soft reset the phone
Hard reset the phone
Update the phone to newest android build
Apply more pressure when plugging in the phone to the Gear
"Wiggling" the phone when plugging in
Installing custom roms / old android builds
Absolutely nothing is working and I've gone to EVERY
phone repair shop to request assistance, but they all just didn't know either.
ANY HELP IS VERY, VERY, appreciated.
